We continue to extend our heartfelt thanks to those who have been fighting the Eagle Creek fire and working hard to keep our communities safe and homes protected. We’ve compiled a list of organizations where individuals can make donations to Gorge-based organizations that will be working on restoration and relief efforts.  Also visit here for more suggestions from Willamette Week on where to donate.  If you know of other organizations helping with issues related to the Eagle Creek fire that you’d like to add to this list, please let us know.
